In Kenya, a man who killed his girlfriend after the family failed to pay him the money he spent on taking care of her after making a marriage vow is also accused of killing the woman's child, Winfrida Masumbuko. The man, Peter John, was arrested in late June this year for killing his girlfriend, Ester John, a resident of Ibamba, after demanding an estimated amount in cash.

Geita regional police commander Henry Mwaibambe told reporters: “The mother (Esther John) was married and has five children, but her husband died in July last year. It is said that after the death of her husband, she started a relationship with the suspect so she grew up giving him a little money which when we interviewed him he said was very expensive. He went on to say that the suspect abducted the woman and her child after luring them to go to the field to harvest rice and when he got there they left the child and went ahead where the man killed his girlfriend.

Commander Mwaibambe in an interview with the suspect confessed to killing and went to show them where he had buried his girlfriend and the army continued the investigation. Commander Mwaibambe also said the suspect confessed to killing his girlfriend's child and then threw his body in the bushes and agreed to take them to the police station and found the remains of his body including the head and some parts of the body and clothes of the child. Meanwhile, Commander Mwaibambe said in another incident two children lost their lives and 15 others survived death after eating food suspected of being toxic.

He identified the dead as Manyirizu Joseph and Berta Mateso both residents of Ikobe in Mbogwe district. Commander Mwaibambe said the children and the injured ate food scraps (porridge) which are rice and meat placenta and started vomiting and diarrhea. He said the survivors were still receiving treatment at the Iboya health center in Mbogwe district in Geita region and their condition was stable.
